Picking up Grey Wolf 19rr Friday: a couple questions

We are picking up our new 19rr from Outpost RV next Saturday. We will stay the first night at their campsite which has hookups I believe. Saturday night we will camp somewhere in Illinois (maybe Argyle Lake State Park or Siloam Springs State Park) with electricity.

This will be out first experience with a travel trailer. Looking for advice on what the trailer will have vs. what I need to purchase. For instance will it come with the hose and adapters to fill with fresh water and the sewer hose to drain black and gray water tanks.

Thanks for any advice.

No it will not have those hoses unless they are nice enough to throw them in. But I doubt they will be. Don't forget about dishes, pots and pans, silver wear all that kind of stuff.

Unless the dealer throws them in free of charge, go to Walmart and get what you need. It's a lot cheaper there than anywhere else including Camping World, etc.

All dealers are different but mine came with a water hose, sewer hose, pressure regulator for the water hose and a adapter for the electrical power cord. If it were me I would ask for it. All they can tell you is no.

Contact them to find out what if anything they will be giving to you. If you do receive a kit it usually not the best quaility but will work in the beginning. You can list what's in the kit and we can go from there.

Thanks guys. They sell loaded trailers at rock bottom prices so they don't throw in freebies. The have a starter kit for $60 but I am sure it the one I see online for $48 which doesn't excite me. I'm off to Wal-mart.

My list so far includes:

Drill speed socket for stabilizers
stick on levels
leveling blocks
30a to 15a adapter
fresh water hose
black/gray drain hose
tongue scale ($123 buck at etrailer)

We have the dishes, cookware, sheets, etc. as we have been doing plush tent camping for the last 12 years.

RV toilet paper
Black/gray water treatment
water regulator
rubber gloves

Is the socket size for the stabilizers 3/4"?

Am I missing anything important? We will be camping two nights on the way home.

One thing to keep in mind is many (not all) maybe even few dealers mine included gave me a 15% discount on anything I bought on the day of sale which even included anything I had to order since it wasn't in stock .
I would ask your dealer about this. IT may save you some bucks !
good luck and have a great time in the new unit !
